Making Alongside

Like many people during lockdown, we found ourselves having to communicate via Zoom. An alien concept at first but is now part of day-to-day life.

We provided online studio sessions, led by our artists, listen and connect sessions where people could chat with others and get advice if needed. We also did a making alongside sessions for members to chat and work on things of their own using any medium they choose.

The making alongside sessions were so popular that we decided to keep them going and are run by Sylvia on a Friday afternoon. It is a chance for people to chat about the week just gone and the coming weekend, which can be difficult for members, especially those who live alone.

Members are producing some beautiful artwork from these sessions and can share their work with other members on our private Facebook group.
